  • Demso Rides a Hyo

    Well, I thought that being an open minded kind of guy, and having access to many different types of bikes, that I would ride one of the Hyo's we have on the lot.
    Unsurprisingly, I was right all along.
    Horrific gear shift, and very very heavy.
    The weight wouldn't be so bad, but they seem they have tried to engineer to COG as high on the bike as possible, possibly in an attempt to make it appear like it handles.
    It doesn't.
    Well it does handle, in a "That fat chick you fumbled around with when you where 15" way.
    Everything on the bike reeks "budget" and is amazingly plastic. The uber digital dash that appeared to have been cable tied to the headstock looked like it had been made by the sister company to whoever made my $10 clock radio.
    The numbers change at about the same speed too.
    I don't know if it's this bike, or all of them, but the gearbox was horrid, the upshift felt nonexistant, with zero feedback as to when it had selected. In fact, the entire bike suffered from a lack of feedback in general, you can see why they get dropped so often.
    Just don't do it hey.

    Would agree with that ... very top heavy. Makes slow turns very hard but not impossible. Especially if i can do them.
